Storyline

Chaank Armaments is experimenting with the ultimate fighting machine which is part human - part machine. So far, the Hardman project has been unreliable and has killed a number of innocent people. The genius behind this project is Jack who lives in a world of models, toys and magazines. When he is fired by Cale for killing a few corporate officers, he unleashes the ultimate killing machine called the 'Warbeast' against Cale and those who would help her.

Goofs

The scene in the elevator when the Warbeast raises his head and clicks his jaw before attacking Raimi is shown backwards. At the end, one of the jaw pistons falls off the head of the Warbeast, but since the scene is backwards, it starts with the piston attaching itself to the head. See more »
